If you are running a training session, but don’t want your attendees to be bogged down by the weight and presence of laptops, tablets are capable of providing a perfect alternative for laptops.  In order to create a seamless training experience, it is a good idea to rent identical tablets.

The people you are training will be making observations on their surroundings, and if they notice a handful white iPad Minis in a sea of black, Samsung Galaxy Tabs, the scene will look a little strange to say the least.

Having multiple types of tablets in play can do a whole lot more than make your training session look unprofessional though. If you have multiple types of tablets on the field, you run the risk of essential training programs not functioning correctly. If your training programs don’t run, you’ll spend valuable time trying to fix the issue. Instead of becoming a fixer and wasting your time, you could have just ordered an identical tablet rental for training courses.  

While, the lack of aesthetic appeal may be a bother to a few people, program malfunctioning will drive the final nail in your coffin of professionalism. The main way to ensure that your training programs run correctly is to make sure you rent tablets with the same operating system. Renting tablets that run the same operating system version will reduce the time spent getting your training program running properly. Not all programs will work on Apple or Android operating systems, so knowing which you need is crucial.

It should also be mentioned that different tablets have different processing speeds. This can cause delays in the training course if a third of your class is playing catch up due to differences in technology. Renting identical tablets prevents lesser tech from weighing down the speed of the class.

If you want to plan your training session like a sane individual, don’t mix and match makes and models of tablets, even if you are looking for a large quantity tablet rental. Renting identical tablets will reduce the amount of trouble you have to deal with as a trainer, and give you more time to train.

3 Great Tablets for Your Next Event!

August 25th, 2016 | Posted by rreeve in Android | Apple | iPad | Rental | Tablet - (0 Comments)

There are many things that can make us happy. One such thing is knowing that you have purchased an item that is easily worth the money you spent on it. The technology market is ever changing, but finding a true technological gem is easier said than done. To aid you in your search for greatness, we are providing you three great options to choose from in your hunt for the best tablet!

  1. Google Pixel C

The Google Pixel C is a versatility machine. The Pixel C is sort of a tablet-laptop hybrid, but it also has several other features that make it stand out from other Android tablets such as:

  • A NVIDIA X1 quad-core processor for high speed performance
  • A full-size keyboard connected to the tablet through magnets
  • A display that has multi-angle capabilities
  • 3 GB of LPDDR4 RAM
  • A 32/64 Gigabyte SSD

Even with all of these features, the Google Pixel C only weighs in at 0.517 kilograms, which is just a little over one pound. The Pixel C runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow for its operating system and is a powerful, quality tablet.

  1. iPad Mini 4

Since this is an article about all tablets, Apple had to have a fighter in the ring. I’ve personally found that the size of the iPad Mini makes it a great device to use for your personal e-library; however the iPad Mini is capable of much more. Given its size of 7.9 inches, the iPad Mini packs some serious heat. Some distinguishing features you’ll get with an iPad Mini 4 are:

 

  • 16/64/128 Gigabytes of storage
  • 10 Hour battery life
  • Apple’s disembodied personal assistant, Siri
  • Cellular data usage capabilities
  • Access to the best applications through the App Store

iPad Mini 4

The iPad Mini 4 currently comes with iOS 9. If you are considering getting an iPad, know that you will be getting some of the most user friendly technology in the tablet market bundled with Apple’s classic design.

 

  1.  Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 almost made it onto this list, but due to the Google Pixel C being extremely similar while having a more reasonable price point, discussion on the Surface Pro will have to wait for another day. A much more reasonable contender in a tablet competition is Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2. This tablet provides some serious competition for the iPad through the following features:

  • 32/128 Gigabytes of storage
  • Choice between an 8” or 9.7” display
  • An Exynos 5433 AP chip
  • Optional Book Cover Keyboard

The Galaxy Tab S2 is a very sleek tablet which weighs in at .86 lbs for the 9.7” version, and only .58 lbs for the 8.0” version. While this tablet may not be as glamorous to you as Apple’s iPads, it makes up for it in pricing and storage space.

All three of these tablets are great choices if you are looking for the most dependable devices currently on the market. These tablets are great for both personal and business needs.

New Looks

Apple has decided to update several visual aspects of your device with the release of iOS 10. Some fancy new graphics you can look forward to seeing include a redesigned lockscreen and a heavily improved Messages app. Improvements for the Messages app include videos sent inside messages can now be seen and played inside of the Messages app, and emojis will be displayed 3 times larger.

More Interactivity

iOS 10 is heavily focused on improving user experience through interactivity. To improve user interaction Apple has done a number of things. Most notably, Apple has opened Siri for developers, meaning you should expect some of the top apps, such as Twitter or Instagram, to start integrating Siri into their design. Apple has also taken several much smaller steps to ensure an increase in user interaction, including:

  1. More notifications for the lockscreen and more things to do in apps from the lockscreen
  2. QuickType can help you complete your messages in a more timely manner.
  3. The Homekit app will now have house accessory support for accessories like security cameras and doorbells.
  4. Your device will now be able to show you where you’ve taken your pictures on a world map, and will also be able to sort people into individual photo albums through facial recognition.
  5. Apple News will present you with articles based on articles you have already read.

Higher Quality of Life

Apple has also announced several quality of life improvements which will release alongside iOS 10.Two such improvements are a redesign of the Apple News app and transcripts for voicemail messages. Apple plans to clean up the news app’s interface and give it easier to sort categories.

Apple unveiled many exciting things at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference which took place last week. One extremely important announcement was Swift Playgrounds.

Before discussing Swift Playgrounds, it is important to know what Swift is. For those of you who do not know, Swift is a programming language created and used by Apple that runs on many operating systems, including macOS, iOS, and Linux.

Swift Playgrounds is an application that has the goal of teaching Apple’s Swift coding while still being fun for the user. To accomplish this goal, Swift Playgrounds presents itself in the style of a video game.

Apple plans to use Swift coding for many years to come, and as a result Swift Playgrounds has the potential to be both a fun and extremely practical application.

Swift Playgrounds is planned to fully release this fall and will be available to download for free for all iPhone and iPad users. For additional information on Swift Playgrounds click here.

Four Convenient Tricks to use for Your iPad

June 7th, 2016 | Posted by rreeve in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

young woman using tablet computer outdoorsYou may have had an iPad for years, or maybe you are just getting your first one. Maybe even a rental? You are probably pretty familiar with your device, and even if you aren’t, Apple’s operating system is probably pretty easy for those of you who are tech savvy to navigate. But not everything is so cut and dry when it comes to tweaking the way your settings should be. I’m here to let you in on a few tricks when it comes to operating your device.

First, disable your phone calls. A small number of users might find this handy if they have their iPad paired with an iPhone and their cellular device is in another room, but for the most part this setting should be turned off. If you’re watching a video, playing a game, or are just really into what you’re working on on your iPad, your activity can and will be disrupted by a phone call. Which is why this particular setting may be better off disabled. After all, that’s why you have an iPad in the first place, NOT to talk on it. Luckily, it’s pretty simple to turn this setting off. Just go to Settings>FaceTime and tap the toggle switch to turn off “Calls from iPhone.”

Second and perhaps most important, enabling find my iPad. Your iPad is precious to you, but sometimes you might put it down and forget where you left it, or even the inconceivable could happen: it could get stolen. This setting is easy to enable, just go to Settings>iCloud, then scroll down to Find My iPad. You may also want to enable “Send Last Location,” that way if your iPad dies and is lost, you can get its last known location before it was powered down.

So you’ve enabled Find My iPad and now your iPad has gone missing, how do you find it? Easy, if you have an iPhone, you can use the “Find My iPhone” application. If you don’t have an iPhone, just sign in to your iCloud.com account and then access Find My iPhone from there.

This next tip has to do with the iPad’s Touch ID, the fingerprint sensor that makes for fast and easy lock-screen security. But, if you just use your thumb, or perhaps pointer finger, you can’t always get into your iPad as quickly as you might want. That’s why we recommend that you add more fingers to Touch ID. You can actually log up to five fingers. All you have to do is tap Settings>Touch ID & Passcode, then enter your numeric passcode. Now tap Add a Fingerprint and follow the prompts as many times as you would like (up to 5).

For some reason or other Apple’s default setting for the battery gauge doesn’t include numbers, meaning there is no percentage displayed to show you how long your battery will last. Perhaps it’s so it looks like your iPad’s charge lasts longer than it truly does, but who really knows. Fortunately, you can add a numeric gauge and know exactly when your iPad will die. Fix this by going to Settings>Battery then turn on Battery Percentage.
